Spring is in the air and Sussex Wildlife Trust Nature Tots parent and child outdoor adventure groups are back for children aged three to five in Rye.
Our Nature Tots groups are run by fully trained Forest School Leaders, providing a wonderful opportunity for families to experience and learn from nature in woodland, meadow and coastal habitats. Children will be encouraged to tackle hands-on outdoor activities, work cooperatively with others, and have an opportunity to gain a sense of achievement while developing social skills and boosting confidence.
Sessions are themed around wildlife and the changing seasons, activities vary at each location and may include: Building a den or bridge; exploring the reserve and finding out all about the birds, animals and insects which live there; making a bird feeder; sawing, drilling and whittling; pond dipping, mini-beast discovery, preparing a snack around the campfire; craft activities using natural materials and strandline treasure hunts.
Children must be accompanied by an adult and booking is now open for March at Rye Harbour Nature Reserve on Wednesdays
